Not sure if it was addressed but the Italian subs are located at Luigi's Pizza shop in between scrambler and the Carowinds theater.

I eat there quite a lot. And they also made a change to the fries. They don't over-season them anymore. Now I can actually eat them without having to stop halfway through.

You can get either the Steak or Chicken Philly with Crab Fries.

Great so I will have to ask for extra season on my fries going forward.

^They have an option in the computer kiosks you use for ordering. You can get extra seasoning and sauce.

I have a family of seven and I was wondering if the dinning plan is worth it at 29.99. I have a 5yr twins 8 and the rest is 12 and above. Any suggestions

If you want to get more food with your day or season meal plan, I recommend using it at Chickie and Pete's. They give you the most food with your meal plan in the entire park.

You should get cheese sauce with your meal without ordering for extra, but sometimes it gets me upset that the people working won't give me cheese sauce for some reason, but it does come with your meal. I normally get my cheese sauce about 75% of the time with ordering more.

Anyone experience the Great Carolina Fest? I won a VIP experience and what I had to eat was pretty good (except the desserts). I was a little perplexed that they would put meal size items in the regular places as I thought the nature of these events were for tasting/sampling.

You think that many people would want it?

Chris told me the main reason for the meals being on the dining plan was because passholders with dining plans complained about it costing extra to sample the food. As far as meals being added to the dining plan,when I asked about that he said probably not. And yes, we tried one of EVERYTHING. The stand out to me was the Pimento Cheeseburger. Everything was good, but the biggest issue we had was some places like Intimidator Kiosk didn't know the Turkey leg with Sweet tea bbq was on the dining plan. They kept telling me to go to HH until I showed them the Great Carolina Fest guide.But overall we enjoyed everything.

So I have a season pass and am thinking about the dining plan, but it doesn't include drinks? So Carowinds' solution would be for me to the refillable cup... but I don't like that option because then I have to carry it all around the park and find something to do with it while riding (buy a locker every time??). What do other season pass holders do?

EDIT: Looks like i can forgo the bottle, pay the same price, and be able to use paper cups?

That is correct! It’s the same price either way, and the disposable cup option is linked to your season pass, so you scan your pass every 15 minutes to get your refill, then just toss your cup out when you are done. I personally have the disposable cups for this season, and it is wonderful! I will not be getting it for next season, because I am trying to stay away from soda. But if I wanted to have sodas still, I would definitely get this again. It is totally worth it. Carrying around a souvenir cup and having to worry about lockers and bins is a pain, so this option worked great.

I did the paper cup this this season along with my gold pass and meal plan . I understand the whole thing about Soda however Carowinds has been adding in addition to the Powerade some places have the Minute Maid juices and the different kinds of tea including green tea. I just renewed everything again and got a free one day fast pass and also one free bring A friend admission. I think that free admission is good through some time in October

Yea I know they have things besides soda, but I’m just trying my best to stick with water wherever possible for now on. Maybe later in the season I’ll change my mind.

Regardless, the drink plan really is an awesome deal
